Writing every day can be quite tough. It’s a challenge and also a good practice to keep creativity flowing.
After each day of writing and thinking, I can feel my brain slowly being squeezed dry. It’s like too much thinking has made my brain blow a fuse.
At The Write Practice, Joe Bunting always posts something about taking a break for at least 24 hours. No tweeting, no checking on Facebook, no blogging, no writing, no anything related to social networking and writing. Just rest. Read a book. Relax.
I’ve read the same post more than once and yet I’m still as stubborn as hell.
I check on Twitter for any mentions. I share posts from my travel blog. I read through other people’s blog posts. I still turn on my laptop, or even our iPad.
Maybe now that I’m feeling so drained, I’ll stop and rest for a while.
